The first Saturn Return is an astrological term for the time when you are approximately 27 – 32 years old, when the planet Saturn returns to the same place it was when you were born. Themes of the old cycle end – sometimes dramatically – and a new 30-year cycle begins. A time to reassess your life and fearlessly walk through the deep tunnel of change.
Name: Caitlin City: Sacramento, CA Saturn Cycle: Saturn Return in Scorpio (Saturn is also conjunct Pluto and opposing Venus) Born: 1983
The day that my Saturn Return was exact, was the day I fled my home and moved into a domestic violence safe house with my three children. I was 29.
I always thought my Saturn Return would be easy or straightforward for me. After all, I was familiar with astrology, had a healthy relationship with Saturn and with my own father (I thought) whom I admired.
Yes, my marriage was falling apart, but I was in denial about it. After all, the number one most important thing to me in my whole life was that my children would grow up in an unbroken, intact family, with both their parents-- something I had always wished I had experienced for myself.
I'm 28 and I've just come to the realisation over the past mammoth few weeks, that yep... my Saturn Return in Scorpio has come, and it is demanding quite a grand welcoming.
Its been grotesque in all its glory. At first I didn't cotton on to what was happening to me. I was feeling tremendous amounts of torment and guilt from past mistakes I made. I thought I was feeling this way because I couldn't bare to live with the guilt and shame, so instead I offered up my honesty of past mistakes to the person I love the most and that just created a new world of pain, torment and guilt that came flooding my way.
